Oct 29, 2020, 5:32 PM IST

Pakistan has for the first time finally admitted to its role in the Pulwama attack bombing of  February 2019 in which 40 Central Reserve Police Force personnel were martyred by a vehicle-borne suicide bomber.

Chest-beating the Pakistani involvement in a terror attack on Indian soil, Pakistan minister Fawad Chaudhry said: "We have entered India and hit them. Our success in Pulwama, that in the form of Imran Khan is a victory for our nation." 

"Everybody is a stakeholder in that attack. Even after Pulwama, we have entered and hit India."

The remarks came while Fawad was defending the government which had been exposed over the release of IAF fighter pilot Abhinandan Varthaman

In a speech in the National Assembly, Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) leader Ayaz Sadiq said that Army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa’s 'legs were trembling' when Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi had in an important meeting pointed out that if Pakistan did not release Abhinandan Varthaman, India would attack Pakistan "that night by 9 pm."

"I remember Shah Mahmood Qureshi was in the meeting in which Imran Khan had refused to attend and Chief of Army Staff General Bajwa came into the room, his legs were shaking and he was perspiring. Foreign Minister said for God's sake let Abhinandan go, India's about to attack Pakistan at 9 pm," Sadiq recalled.<br />
